what value can you get from a GD show?really?A bunch of homeless drug addicts.Shady dealers,and people flipping out of their minds.Would you let your kid go to a GD concert by himself?

you're right - the only folks at shows were homeless drug addicts. you actually prove over and over that no one of any true intelligence or accomplishment ever went to shows or enjoyed their music (so, you were that 1 in 10,000 that came solely for the show?).

would i let my 6 year old go solo to a show? no. but then again, I don't let my 6 year old go anywhere alone.
at 16, yes, because my kid has already been to numerous shows and fests and will be well equipped to deal with stuff. it's not like my kid won't get exposed to the drugs and other stuff elsewhere in society. in fact, if my kid got exposed to bad stuff at a show, chances are fellow heads would help the kid out, and i know from personal experience that on the west coast bgp and the haight ashbury medical clinic folks would really, really help (not talking meadowlands security/help)

yep, those phish and widespread shows were clean family fun.

glad to know that no other band in the 60s attracted any drug users.

it's hard to argue with your irrefutable superior intellect and grasp of the relevant facts.

but to answer the question posed - yes, as a teen my kid could go (as I did). But the question is silly since the band no longer exists (I tend to agree with you re the bob and phil post jer groups - although I did enjoy phil with barrerre and payne)
